Global HIV Archive

The Global HIV Archive (GHA) expands and updates the identification of effective HIV prevention programs that have been implemented and evaluated in low-resource countries; standardizes and makes these programs available for public use. Eight programs are available for individual sales to domestic researchers or practitioners. If you are an international (non-US) researcher/practitioner or you are interested in accessing all programs, please check out the GHA subscription site.

The GHA subscription site contains 10 user-friendly programs and complementary customized tools to assist in program selection; budget development; program adaptation; evaluation; and outcomes dissemination. This interactive web-based resource, available in English, Spanish and French, with a mobile-based program selection tool works to bridge the gap between research and practice in low-resource regions of the world.

The website was developed with a scalable, cloud-based infrastructure, allowing for nearly unlimited user and content growth. This infrastructure, along with the ability to integrate into existing NGOs' efforts in implementing HIV prevention services across a variety of constituencies, allows the site and programs to be made available in a variety of ways, for example, to a single individual, a single organization, a consortium of organizations, or even across an entire country based on site users' needs.
